“I really can’t thank you enough but I hope I can convey how much this has meant to me. I know you understand the struggles disabled people face on a daily basis and the communications difficulties I encounter being profoundly deaf”.

"Ryan has been wonderful throughout the whole process. He dealt mainly by email as I cannot hear on the telephone. We have been able to contact him quickly and efficiently."

"I have consulted Ryan on a number of matters related to my work. I am retired now, however I worked as a psychiatric social worker (forensic) I was impressed by his knowledge and acumen. Mr R.Marsden. B.A.(Hons) C.Q.S.W."

He is very knowledgeable and gave me sound advice from the outset and dealt with matters very swiftly.  I couldn't have been more pleased with the result."
